Hello..

Started golf quite a while but my skill is really..SIGH!

Trying to find beginner to go green regularly to improve the play...as I find playing in range and playing in green is a huge difference...

Is just hard to improve if keep practising in Range..

But....I do not want to sabotage or slow down anyone game..

Looking for people who can play along for a rest and relax game and enjoy the game..

Hello ...

Great to have your reply. I can't PM your reply yet because I have not hit the post limit..

My time is quite flexible but I also prefer to play in morning weekdays , no rush and won't get chase by group behind..

I have not took any PC test...
Actually I'm trying to find way to get the Handicap test, not sure can pass it though.

Are you going to HC test soon ?

Actually, IMHO, get 2 experience golfer to go better, pace of play better and also can learn a tricks or 2 from them.

Ya, but provided they don't mind playing with beginners. That will require a lot patience I think and might spoilt their game...and fun... Smile

As far as I know, to play in Sg, I think you at least need PC, even with PC the choice venue is also limited.

Anyway I have no PC and HC... So only play in Malaysia.

If you don't mind can drop by...

That is really far... Anyway I will be around JB area, kulai or senai is ok.

Palm, jgcc, orchard, Horizon (can consider but high budget for weekend), impian emas or austin (9 hole) also can.

But my best timing is on Sunday if you don't mind...

Very Happy

A good alternative would be the executive courses such as Mandai, JCC, etc. Saves the trouble of having to travel to Malaysia, and you can get some invaluable actual course experience.

In Singapore, without PC and Handicap only can play at MBGC. Just take swing test at $10.70 (w GST) and it'll last for a month. I'm a beginner myself and IMHO, avoid playing in a flight of all beginners if possible. A bit stressful because course marshall will keep bugging you to keep up with the flight in front, especially when the flight behind is damn fast, which happened to me on my last round. Kept running to my ball to maintain a good pace. Luckily the flight in front is not that fast either so we managed to catch a breather now and then at the tee box.

Playing there again this coming Wed afternoon. Hopefully this time round the flight behind have at least 1 beginner. Cheers Jump

keep good pace like walk faster, but don't run tired yourself more easily, then after abt 13-15 holes, you'll be completely exhausted. A piece of advice if sharing buggy, when you get off buggy ask your friend to drive to his ball assuming his ball is further then yours. Then you choose your stick to hit and after that repair divots and walk to your buggy. Like this your pace would be faster, in the case of buggy on track, if you not sure of what club to use, bring down more than 1.

Thanks for your advices bro. Actually already tried playing according to your advices above. Seems that still not intuitive enough so require more rounds of practice. Smile
